we made these for a little girl tea party. I'm not sure that the girls liked it, but I did. Nice and easy. Thanks

These little sandwiches were wonderful, they brought back memories of tea parties with my gram, she was partial to these little sandwiches. I couldn't wait to try them. The sandwiches tasted exactly as I remembered, crisp and fresh tasting, with butter and salt & pepper. Perfection. I didn't have any white bread, so I thinly sliced a calabrese bun, it didn't look too pretty but sure tasted great. Thanks for sharing.
